Specifying the optimum plastic material selection for a medical device is a critical decision for any designer or engineer. A design must choose the optimum material form the hundreds of thousands of commercially available plastic materials on the market. He or she must make this selection based on dozens of complex design criteria with the certainty that their final decision will satisfy all the product specifications.
This panel discussion on plastic material selection was one of the best-attended presentations held at the 2019 MD&D Show in New York’s Jacob Javits Center. Michael Paloian challenged four of the plastics industry’s leaders in materials science with provocative questions relevant to all medical device designers and engineers.
